Game On—Balancing Cost and Performance
The convergence of applications in the graphics and consumer segment is bringing TV, social media, home entertainment, and gaming to end consumers through one piece of equipment. Micron offers one of the industry’s broadest portfolios of market-leading DRAM and nonvolatile memory devices to meet this very competitive segment’s demands for high-performance, cost-efficient memory solutions. We’ve got the memory you need for a broad range of designs, including digital TVs, Blu-ray Disc™ players, video game consoles, portable game systems, personal media players, PC graphics cards, media tablets, cameras, or printers.
Whether you need SDR or DDR2 to extend the life of an established consumer design or cutting-edge DDR3 or LPDRAM to enable mobile gaming applications to push the performance envelope in a new product, our broad DRAM portfolio fits the bill.
We offer one of the world’s largest selections of serial (SPI) and parallel NOR Flash densities, packages, and options—purpose-built to meet the design requirements of consumer products.
Our diverse portfolio of high-density discrete MLC and SLC NAND devices provides distinct features, functionality, and performance to match the specific requirements of consumer and graphics applications for a better cost-per-bit.
Our e•MMC devices help make technology transitions nearly seamless by handling media management and ECC internally.
Whether you’re trying to minimize power consumption, free up board space, increase speed, or do everything at once, our NAND/NOR + DDRx/LPDRAM MCPs can drive your design.
Micron offers one of the industry’s broadest memory portfolios to support graphics and consumer applications, including DRAM, serial NOR, parallel NOR, SLC NAND, and MLC NAND, as well as a range of different managed NAND solutions (e•MMC™ and ClearNAND™ Flash) for the consumer market. We continue innovating our product portfolio to provide dependable memory and one-stop-shopping for our graphics and consumer electronics customers.
Our advanced process technology, combined with our track record of design and manufacturing expertise, provides the foundation for our continued development of high-performance memory to support gaming applications. Micron is fully committed to the graphics and consumer segment, working with customers to identify and develop solutions for both current and emerging applications.
Stability, flexibility, and availability for the long haul are important traits in a memory provider—particularly for consumer applications with highly complex and segmented product lines, such as cameras, printers, and video players.
